Network

The Office of Technology maintains a central network system (built in summer 2006). This network primarily operates with Novell Netware and Windows 2003 onHewlett Packard clustered servers that access over 8 terabytes of storage space on an array of hard drives (SAN). Data flows over fiber to each building, moving at gigabit speeds. Data is backed up daily, weekly, and monthly. All students are provided with a network account and a direct connection to the Internet from the residence halls at no extra charge. Information on how to connect your computer is just a click away on the UD web site.
